Let no man judge you

Colossians 2:16

16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.

A good post…

The Scripture specifically says :

“…YAHUAH HAS MADE ZION FORGET HER APPOINTED FESTIVALS AND HER SABBATHS; in His fierce anger He has spurned both king and priest.” (Lamentations 2:6b)

This is why the majority of Yisrael (and ALL of Judaism) is literally “lost in time”. Those who do not yet have the perception-revelation of luni-solar calendation by natural eye-observation…are still without memory and understanding of when the accurate-factual calendar dates of the shabbats and moedim (festivals) are.

MANY Yisraelite and Gentile historians confirm on the record this important fact that the sabbaths WERE changed from the natural cycles which were observed by sight, to those with fixed dates (that was written about in the Scriptures) which Saturn’s-Day keepers deny.

HOW can we trust any of man’s so-called “calendars” when the dates have repeatedly been changed around, and likewise, when Yahuah’s own Scriptures specifically say that He caused Zion to FORGET her (calendar and accurate dates of) festivals, shabbats, etc.,…and historians confirm the same thing???

Also,…the ancient Yisraelites (PRIOR to forgetting the truth) did NOT have a pre-written calendar, but followed His heavenly luminary-timekeepers to know when ALL dates accurately are. 

What is a tribe in desert or in a rainforest supposed to do, whenever taught the Torah commandments of observing His shabbats, festivals, etc.,….ask for a Judaism “calendar”,…..or look up at the sky to His heavenly clock-calendar??? I sincerely hope that you do not expect people to follow man-made tradition instead of our Creator Yahuah’s OWN calendar. If one does not know which day is #1, or when the shabbat is, etc.,….all one needs to do is LOOK UP into the heavens, just as our Creator intended. This information will become extremely valuable to many believers,….when society collapses in the future, and there is no technology nor pre-written “calendars” to rely upon. Selah. (muse and ponder)

The old paths.

Jeremiah 6:16

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

So what are the old paths? The Calendar would be a good place to start.

 

The times appointed by Yahuwah

 

Yahuwah’s appointed times:

Genesis 1:14
14 Then Yahuwah said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

Mo’ed appears in the Bible for the first time in Genesis 1:14. The word “seasons” in this verse has been translated from the word mo’ed. Mo’ed literally means an “appointed time” as shown from the Strongs biblical dictionary (A dictionary which assists us to translate the original text so we are not just assuming the meaning).

The verse might better read:

14 Then Yahuwah said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for appointed times, and for days and years;

The Bible tells us that it was the moon which was to be used for determining the appointed times in Psalm 104:19

19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

Again by translating the word “seasons” (mo’ed) appropriately it says:

19 He appointed the moon for appointed times: the sun knoweth his going down.

What were the appointed times?

Leviticus 23 tells us what these appointed times are

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

The words “concerning the feasts” has again been translated from the same word “mo’ed”.

Translating it appropriately it would read:

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the appointed times of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

So, we can tell so far:

1) The Month was based upon the cycles of the Moon
2) The Moon was used to determine the appointed times
3) The appointed times are listed in Leviticus 23
4) The first appointed time was the Sabbath.
5) The times of the Sabbath – an appointed time – is based upon the cycles of the Moon.

Screen Shot 2014-05-21 at 9.08.47 pm

6) An appointed time in the month is fixed, set or established.
7) New Moon days were the days in between the months.

 

But 7 days does not divide evenly into 29.5 days? The time taken for the Moon to do an entire cycle! What was Yahuwah thinking??

The answer is simple. New Moon day is a separate day to the week was at the beginning / end of each month as they waited for the New moon to appear.

In Isaiah 66:22-23 it talks about what will happen in the new heavens and new earth.

22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth
Which I will make shall remain before Me,” says the Lord,
“So shall your descendants and your name remain.
23 And it shall come to pass
That from one New Moon to another,
And from one Sabbath to another,
All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the Lord.

Yahuwah is always correct. It is us who need adjustment!

Now many are not familiar with this calendar. Yes, even I was the same until I spent a little time and studied it. Many are familiar with the Gregorian calendar. Many also say that they must be correct as they have been following the seventh day on Sunday or Saturday every week. However for this to be true, one needs to check the scriptures to see if this reoccurring seven day continuous cycle even exists?

Before we do this however, let look at what Lucifer had to say in Isaiah 14:13-14

13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahuwah;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’

The the words “of the congregation” are again translated from the single word “Mo’ed”

Let’s translate these verses using the appropriate words:

13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahuwah;
I will also sit on the mount of the appointed times
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’

So one needs to think. How would Satan get to sit upon the mount of the appointed times?

The answer is simple. One just needs to check Exodus and read when the Moses left Egypt and following his path and you will see when the Mo’ed were placed upon. The Calendar was changed such that anyone who follows it to calculate their times of worship would always be wrong. What a better way to fool everyone?

Revelation 18:3 also says that it will fool everyone:

For ALL THE NATIONS have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

Here is a link which goes through the month in more detail: https://robrichmond.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/the-month-in-the-bible/ , but to keep it short here, New Moon day is upon the first of the month, and the Sabbaths were upon the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th days in the Bible. There are no other days upon which a Sabbath is shown in scripture.

Using the original words in the Bible was not something I was familiar with until I started researching the subject. The Bible has been translated from Hebrew and Greek. During translation errors appear. This is part of the reason why we have so many different versions. Some versions do well in some sections, others do well in other sections.

If one wants to look up the original meanings of the words, I have found that this website allows one to view the strongs concordance: http://www.blueletterbible.org/

When one realises that the calendar of worship was changed, then the following will make sense. It is from Daniel 8. When one compares it however, to other translations, it appears to be totally different. I have simply taken the original word which was used, and translated it using the strongs concordance. Many of the words used in these verses do not appear to have been translated as I believe they should be. And when you read it with the knowledge of the calendar change, you will see why this is so:

Daniel 8:9-14

9 And from one H259 of them came forth H3318 a little H4704 horn H7161 which became superior H3499 and very great H1431 toward the south H5045 and toward the sunrise H4217 and toward the glorious H6643 (land).

10 And it (the little horn) became great H1431 (against) the sun, moon and stars H6635 in the visible sky H8064 and causes them to waste away such that they become inferior H5307 , the sun, moon  H6635  and the sparkling stars H3556  to the surface of the earth H776 and trampled upon them (thus destroying the knowledge of their function).

11 And he made himself of great importance, magnifying himself H1431 as the Ruler of rulers H8269 of the continuously without interruption H8548 (cycle of weeks) and caused himself of be exalted and shown as powerful H7311 H7311 and God’s dwelling place the temple H4720 was cast down H7993.

12 And the Sun Moon and the stars H6635 were delivered up and given H5414 to the continuously without interruption H8548 as a transgression against God H6588 which cast away H7993 the truth H571 to the ground H776 which bought about H6213 prosperity and success (for the little horn).

13  Then I heard H8085 a certain H259 Holy One H6918 speaking  H1696 to another H259 Holy One H6918 who said H559 to that certain one H6422 which spoke H1696 “(Until when) the vision H2377 of the continuously (without interruption) H8548  transgression H6588 which stuns, stupefies and makes desolate H8074 will be permitted H5414 to be set apart from God H6944 such that the Sun, moon and stars H6635 are trodden upon?  H4823

14 And he said H559 unto two thousand H505 and three H7969 hundred H7969 evenings H6153 and mornings H1242;  then the separation of God H6944 will be justified and made righteous.  H6663

 

Again, here is points to a calendar change. The calendar based upon the Sun Moon and stars is trampled upon and a continuously cycling calendar is used in it place. Does this sound familiar?

I would ask all to research this subject. It is very important as we go forward.

More from Ellen White

“Artificial lights may appear, claiming to come from heaven, but they cannot shine forth as the star of holiness, the star of heavenly brightness, to guide the feet of the pilgrim and the stranger into the city of our God. Shall we allow heaven’s bright beams to be eclipsed by artificial lights? False lights will take the place of the true, and many souls will be for a time deceived. God forbid that it should be so with us. The true light now shineth, and will light up the windows of the soul that are opened heavenward.” — Letter 43, 1901. EGW

 “Tame truth cannot convert. Sleeping ministers preach to sleeping people.–By tamely presenting the truth, merely repeating the theory without being stirred by it themselves, they can never convert men. If they should live as long as did Noah, their efforts would be without effect. Their love for souls must be intense, and their zeal fervent. A listless, unfeeling manner of presenting the truth will never arouse men and women from their deathlike slumber. They must show by their manners, by their acts and words, and by their preaching and praying, that they believe that Christ is at the door. Men and women are in the last hours of probation, and yet are careless and stupid, and preachers have no power to arouse them; they are asleep themselves. Sleeping ministers preaching to a sleeping people!” –2T 337.

“There is to be in the [Seventh-day Adventist] churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door of the heart by confession and repentance. In th
210
manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. “Why,” they say, “should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?”–RH Extra, Dec. 23, 1890. {LDE 209.3} 
The third angel’s message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the earth with its glory will be called a false light, by those who refuse to walk in its advancing glory.” –RH May 27, 1890. {LDE 210.1} 

Most Non-Adventists Will Reject the Warning 

“Many who hear the message–by far the greatest number–will not credit the solemn warning. Many will be found disloyal to the commandments of God, which are a test of character. The Lord’s servants will be called enthusiasts. Ministers will warn the people not to listen to them. Noah received the same treatment while the Spirit of God was urging him to give the message, whether men would hear or whether they would forbear.–TM 233 (1895). {LDE 210.2} 
Some will listen to these warnings, but by the vast majority they will be disregarded.–HP 343 (1897). {LDE 210.3} 
The popular ministry, like the Pharisees of old, filled with anger as their authority is questioned, will 
211
denounce the message as of Satan, and stir up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and persecute those who proclaim it.” –GC 607 (1911). {LDE 210.4}

When new light is presented to the church, it is perilous to shut yourselves away from it. Refusing to hear because you are prejudiced against the message to the messenger will not make your case excusable before God. To condemn that which you have not heard and do not understand will not exalt your wisdom in the eyes of those who are candid in their investigations of truth. And to speak with contempt of those whom God has sent with a message of truth, is folly and madness. If our youth are seeking to educate themselves to be workers in His cause, they should learn the way of the Lord, and live by every word that proceedeth out of His mouth. They are not to make up their minds that the whole truth has been unfolded, and 
33
that the Infinite One has no more light for His people. If they entrench themselves in the belief that the whole truth has been revealed, they will be in danger of discarding precious jewels of truth that shall be discovered as men turn their attention to the searching of the rich mine of God’s word.” {CSW 32.1

We are to throw aside our narrow, selfish plans, remembering that we have a work of the largest
magnitude and highest importance. In doing this work we are sounding the first, second, and
third angel’s messages, and are thus being prepared for the coming of that other angel from
heaven who is to lighten the earth with his glory.6T 406

“The time has come when through Godʼs

Instructors in our schools should never be bound about

God to give the message His people shall speak. Let not 
any minister feel under bonds or be gauged by menʼs 
measurement. The gospel must be fulfilled in 
accordance with the messages God sends. That which 
God gives His servants to speak today would not 
perhaps have been present truth twenty years ago, but it 
is Godʼs message for this time.” (EGW 1888 Materials,

Warning Against Despising God’s Message

“I would speak in warning to those who have stood for years resisting light [SEE APPENDIX.] and cherishing the spirit of opposition. How long will you hate and despise the messengers of God’s righteousness? God has given
97
them His message. They bear the word of the Lord. There is salvation for you, but only through the merits of Jesus Christ. The grace of the Holy Spirit has been offered you again and again. Light and power from on high have been shed abundantly in the midst of you. Here was evidence, that all might discern whom the Lord recognized as His servants. But there are those who despised the men and the message they bore. They have taunted them with being fanatics, extremists, and enthusiasts. Let me prophesy unto you: Unless you speedily humble your hearts before God, and confess your sins, which are many, you will, when it is too late, see that you have been fighting against God. Through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, no longer unto reformation and pardon, you will see that these men whom you have spoken against have been as signs in the world, as witnesses for God. Then you would give the whole world if you could redeem the past, and be just such zealous men, moved by the Spirit of God to lift your voice in solemn warning to the world; and, like them, to be in principle firm as a rock. Your turning things upside down is known of the Lord. Go on a little longer as you have gone, in rejection of the light from heaven, and you are lost. “The man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation.” {TM 96.2}
I have no smooth message to bear to those who have been so long as false guideposts, pointing the wrong way. If you reject Christ’s delegated messengers, you reject Christ. Neglect this great salvation, kept before you for years, despise this glorious offer of justification through the blood of Christ and sanctification through the cleansing power of the Holy Spirit, and there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation. I entreat
98
you now to humble yourselves and cease your stubborn resistance of light and evidence.” TM 96,97,98

Year count

Don’t you just love the way Yahuwah shows us things when we ask? Been thinking a little about the Biblical year we are in recently, and trying to see if there was a way to work it out. Why? Two reasons. I want to know where in the 19 year cycle we are and where we may be in relation to the 6000th year.

I still don’t know, however I keep coming across things which I pray are pointing the way. Thought I would share this with all. Get some comments on it? Thoughts etc…

I was driving home today and it came to my mind that the time span that Yahuwah said we will spend in heaven with him is 1000 years.

And I also note that there are many sources which place us around or approaching the year 6000. Six days we are able to work, but the seventh is time with the Yahuwah. If a day in heaven is like a 1000 years here on earth, (2 Peter 3:8 – 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day), then we may be nearing the seventh day.

If Yahuwahs Calendar has cycled every 19 years since creation, and the 19 years cycle was marked in the skies between the Blood Moons in 1949 – 1967 (no idea if this is correct) The year 2006 is the year 5986 as the cycle is 1949 – 1967 (19), 1968 – 1986 (19), 1987 –
2005 (19).

This places the year 2019 as the year 6000 which just so happens to contain the mid point between Sept 14 2015 (Feast of Trumpets) and Sept 6 2022 (Day of Atonement 1260+1290 days = 2550 days). Is this the tribulation period?

The mid point works out to be the 6th of March in days @1270 days (1/2 of 7 years) and guess what? If the 19 years have been cycling non stop since day 0 up to now the 7th of March 2019 just so happens to be the start of the biblical year! (Depending on your time zone), which would be the start of the 6000th year and the mid point of the tribulation.

Look I don’t know if this is correct. But I do find it interesting how it all just slots together.
